The 2.0 focus is not bad, but it lacks HP (only 130 !!). That's why I will buy an Alfa... I know the 2.0 JTS is great, but at the moment it is too expensive... That's why I wanted to know if the 1.8 (140 HP) is good enough for a Sportwagon, which I think is quite heavy.
I`ve had a 2.0 litre Focus,had a 1.6 ts 156 and driven several 2.0ts Alfas.The 2.0 litre Focus is actually probably quicker on paper, than a 1.8ts Sportwagon,but the Alfa engine is so much sweeter,you will be smiling too much to notice the slight prformance shortfall.
